thought this was one of those overrated restaurants with inflated price tags. but after ordering our first dish the crespela ai funghi e tartufo, we were convinced that this place truly delivers what its known for: fine flavours and truly authentic Italian cooking. while we found the butternut squash soup a tad salty, all was forgiven when we had our US Angus Rib Eye drizzled with balsamic vinegar. its simplicity brought out the true taste of the meat. brought back memories of rome! the difference is, at l'incontro, food comes with the attentive service of waiters who make the dining experience more pleasurable than the ones i've had abroad.

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere!! Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice night out with friends/family or a business dinner.

Crespella ai funghi e tartufo was melt in your mouth wonderful. Bistecca alla Fiorentina was cooked to perfection and very tender and flavorful.

Service was attentive and excellent.

My partner and I recently ate here for dinner. We were so surprised at the caliber of food and wine they were serving. We had a spread of anti-pasto with an assortment of cheese and home-made flatbread, truffle cream oysters with spaghetti which was divine, shrimp bruschetta and four-cheese arancini paired with a bottle of Proseco Italian Sparkling Wine. The food was so exquisitely prepared and so delicious.

The ambiance was warm with rustic interior and yellow lights that it gave a romantic feel perfect for couples. The service was superb giving attention to detail to every part of the dinner service.

I'd say this is the perfect restaurant for dinner with your loved one whether you're celebrating a special occasion or just want to have a nice and lovely dinner.

The risotto was tasteful and well prepared. The appetizer was ok. The dessert was delightful. It was truly a fine dining experience.

Having too much of the city? Head to L'Incontro for some quiet time with your lady.

The L'Incontro's staff are well trained, very attentive and extremely courteous. Their product knowledge is top class and their recommendation are superb.

Sunday lunch is perfect as this will give you the most private sense of the place (it can get pretty crowded on dinner); but a dinner reservation for the corner table has its appeal every now and then.

The food is divine and is worth every penny, excellent wine and beer selection, and has one of the best desserts I had the pleasure of gorging, I will kill my grandmother for a tub of their Tiramisu (must try!). Book early and enjoy the place, it's simply perfect.
